Roman Frontiers - The Antonine Wall in Falkirk

Roman Frontiers: The Antonine Wall in Falkirk

On 20 May, as part of the Festival of Museums, Falkirk Community Trust will be launching the beginning of a programme of events focused on the World Heritage Site of the Antonine Wall, which will include an exhibition in Callendar House, talks, real and simulated excavations, re-enactments and children's activities.
The exhibition will illustrate the ability of the Roman army to adapt physical frontiers to the geographical and topographical setting wherever they occurred in the Empire.
The central feature will be a full scale representation of the linear frontier barrier on the Antonine Wall.
 
Objects on display will include the famous Roman whistling lead slingshot from Burnswark and a splendid griffin figurine that provided the crest of a Roman cavalry helmet, found at Polmont, will be on display for the first time ever. And on the native side we have the exquisitely enamelled terret ring from a chariot found by a metal detectorist at Airth.
